Get ready to trade again

Stuck at home and wondering what will be left of your business at the end of this crisis?

Take charge of the situation and work on your marketing to keep your business alive and kicking in the eyes of your customers.

 

There is so much you can do for FREE to keep your brand and business centre stage during the Coronavirus crisis.

Dan and Anne-Marie at Brandabble have come up with some simple ideas to help you make the most of your “down” time.

Be seen – be social

At Brandabble, we know how important it is to communicate and engage with your clients and the community at large.

Thanks (!) to the Coronavirus crisis, we all have a lot of time on our hands and everyone is on social media – day and night!

If you haven’t already done so, set up a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account – all three would be great, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

If you don’t know where to start……. Google it!

There are loads of simple “How to..” guides out there and we are only a phone call or email away if you need some help.

Start “talking” to customers

Once your page is looking its sparkling best, it’s time to start communicating with your customers.

Remember, this is not a time for “selling,” unless you make PPE equipment or hand sanitiser!

Your social media activity should be one or more of the following: –

  • Entertaining
  • Informative
  • Engaging
  • Helpful

So, if you are a nail technician in Lancing, why not explain how to cut your nails safely or remove Shellac at home?

If you are a pub or restaurant, why not post the recipes for your most popular dishes?

And, if you are a car mechanic, why not explain whether it’s important to start your engine once a week while your car is sat on the driveway.

 Remember – include a link to your website on your post.

The decision to buy from you in future will probably be made after someone has visited your website for more information.

Make sure your website is up-to-date, all the links are working and that you are adding fresh content regularly to make sure Google is aware of you.
